Mich. Rep.
Wolpe
admits to
bad checks
DETROIT (AP) - U.S. Rep.
Howard Wolpe, the latest member of
Michigan's House delegation to ac-
knowledge writing bad checks, says
the House Sergeant at Arms twice
told him his account was clean.
Wolpe (D-Lansing) said in a
statement that he is "surprised and
angry" to learn that he had written
eight checks totaling $720.75 on in-
sufficient funds.
"I take full responsibility for not
having done a better job of my own
personal accounting," Wolpe said.
"At the same time, I am angry about
the House Bank policy that did not
notify members when they overdrew
on their accounts."
Wolpe was the 11th member of
Michigan's 18-member House dele-
gation to acknowledge writing
checks on insufficient funds.
Rep. Bob Davis (R-Gaylord), the
third-biggest abuser of the House
bank, admitted this week that he
wrote 878 bad checks totaling nearly
$350,000.
Davis continued his trek across
the Upper Peninsula yesterday to
meet face-to-face with constituents
about the banking scandal. Davis's
11th District covers all of upper
Michigan and the northern quarter of
the Lower Peninsula.
Wolpe said when the General
Accounting Office report detailing
the overdrafts by members of
Congress first gained publicity last
fall, he asked then-Sergeant at Arms
Jack Russ to check his account .

Muslims bombed Israeli embassy

Islamic group takes
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina
(AP) - An Islamic fundamentalist1
group in Beirut claimed responsibil-l
ity yesterday for the Israeli Embassy
bombing that killed 12 people, in-
jured more than 250 and reduced the
building to chunks of concrete and1
twisted metal.I
The death toll seemed likely tol
rise. Rescuers worked with picks and
shovels and eventually switched to1
cranes and front-end loaders as the
possibility of finding survivors
faded.

responsibility for Argentina bombing

An embassy spokesperson said
five Israelis were missing and be-
lieved dead in the rubble.
Tuesday's explosion at the
French-style embassy near the city's
central business district was caused
by a car bomb containing 220
pounds of explosives, said Interior
Minister Jose Luis Manzano.
The blast instantly collapsed the
four-story structure into a pile of
concrete, metal pipes, wood beams,
brick dust, broken glass and bodies.
In Beirut, the pro-Iranian Shiite

Muslim group Islamic Jihad said an
Argentine convert to Islam carried
out the attack to avenge the Feb. 16
killing of a Shiite leader and his fam-
ily in an Israeli air attack in
Lebanon.
"We hereby declare with all pride
that the operation ... is one of our
continuous strikes against the crimi-
nal Israeli enemy in an open-ended
war which will not cease until Israel
is wiped out of existence," a com-
munique said.

AID
Continued from page 1
assistant vice-president for academic affairs.
Ruser agreed with Holmes' assessment, claiming
that the government is contradicting itself with these
proposed changes. She said in the past over $100 mil-
lion in fellowship programs have been set aside for spe-
cific minority groups, and now the government is at-
tempting to restrict how colleges and universities ap-
propriate that financial aid.
Michael Lieberman of the Anti-Defamation League
supported the race-neutral provisions proposed by the
Department of Education.
"Our position is that it is a bad idea to have even one
exclusive scholarship that goes to students on the basis
of race," Lieberman said.
But he said no exceptions to donate funds to a spe-
cific minority group, regardless of the motive, should
exist. Taking action to redress past discrimination will
make "floors become ceilings," he added.
"Once administrations have filled these scholarships,
they think they have done a good job of minority re-
cruitment," Lieberman said.
As a result, after minimum funds are dispersed to
minorities, colleges lessen their efforts to attract a di-
verse student body, he added.
Raymond Mullins, president of the Ypsilanti-Willow
Run branch chapter of the NAACP, disagreed with
Lieberman. "I do not see any harm in the government
taking remedial action," he said.
Affirnative action is needed in these circumstances
to ensure everyone a chance for an education, he added.

ACE is concerned that the Department of
Education's efforts to legally encourage minority-en-
rollment will have the opposite effect.
"Under the proposed guidance, much minority-tar-
geted financial aid would have to be given to non-mi-
norities. In all likelihood the number of minority stu-
dents receiving financial aid from all sources would be
reduced at a significant number of institutions," said
Robert Atwell, ACE president, in a written statement.
Holmes said that if changes are ratified after a four-
year grace period, those who oppose the provisions will
most likely file an appeal to block their implemention.
The discussion of changes in financial aid stem from
the 1991 Fiesta Bowl, when bowl officials had diffi-
culty attracting teams to play the New Year's game be-
cause Arizona had refused to make Dr. Martin Luther
King's birthday an official holiday.
As motivation, the bowl committee offered potential
candidates $100,000 in minority scholarship money to
any team willing to play.
In reaction, Michael Williams, assistant secretary of
civil rights at the Department of Education, said schol-
arship money earmarked for a single minority violated
the federal anti-discrimination law outlined in Article
VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The Department of Education's five-point plan, de-
signed simultaneously to increase minority enrollment
in colleges and to remain within the legal bounds of the
civil rights act, has drawn criticism.
"I suggest there are clear alternatives in ways of
viewing legally what they ought to do, and these views
ought to be heard loud and clear in Washington, D.C.,"
Holmes added.
